The publisher's new "What To Paint" series offers workbooks aimed at those who have a strong desire to begin painting but are unsure of what their subject should be. These books provide specific step-by-step instruction including outline drawings that readers can trace to use as basis sketches for paintings. The tracing process is explained well, and readers can photocopy these pages. Each of the 24 painting exercises in this book includes specific tips on palette colors and flower texture detail. Watercolor painting teacher Tait's guide is best suited for beginner hobbyist painters.
